What are the three things that college and university students don’t have?
Time. Space. And money.
But, students don’t need to worry because Walmart Canada has them covered.
Walmart Canada is proud to be a convenient, affordable destination for everything students need to set up their dorms and off-campus spaces from bedding, bathroom accessories and storage to tech, small appliances and furniture.
Time-saving one-stop shop
“As a one-stop shop, we’re saving our customers time allowing them to get everything they need for their dorm spaces at one place versus running from store to store,” Trina Vokes, Omnichannel Merchant, Soft Home at Walmart Canada.
“Customers can also shop online and with Walmart Pickup or delivery, which provide even more time savings.”
Walmart customers now have access to unlimited, free next-day delivery from stores on more than 65,000 items, including groceries and general merchandise with Delivery Pass.
Small spaces, big impact
Some dorm spaces can be very small. We encourage students to look for multi-functional items to maximize space and function as well as items that can be taken out as needed and packed away when not.
Under bed storage is also key, a game-changer for everything else that doesn’t fit into drawers and closets.
Saving money at Walmart
“Second-year students are also really important customers,” said Erin Ichiyen, Senior Omnichannel Merchant, Bedding at Walmart Canada.
“Many of these students have moved off campus and it’s a much bigger shop to stock a new apartment or house from scratch. It’s not just bedding. It’s pots and pans, small appliances, furniture and so much more.”
Tuition and books plus being in a period of inflation - this can quickly add up. That means many students don’t have a lot of extra money to spend outfitting their living spaces. At Walmart, fighting inflation is in our DNA. We’re very proud to be Canada’s #1 choice to save on back-to-school shopping* and students can also save 10% off dorm room essentials with a minimum $200 spend.**
Finally, we want students to enjoy their living spaces and feel comfortable. An easy and affordable way to inject personal style into any space are with colour, prints, texture and décor, which you can find in bedding, accent rugs, cushions, and accessories like twinkle lights.

Wishing all university and college students a fantastic school year. You’ve got this!
